Abstract:

"The prospect of moving abroad and looking for a job in a new country - even a big friendly one like Australia - can be overwhelming. Where do you begin? How do you actually find and land the job you want? Are there practical steps you can take to ensure your dream becomes reality? Yes, there are. And this book lays them out in logical order, according to the specific needs of migrants and intending migrants who have obtained the necessary visa. It tells you where to start looking, what Australian employers are looking for and how you can best present yourself to fit the job. It also has a wealth of tips on what to do in preparation, before leaving for Australia. In clear, simple terms, it explains how to transfer your skills and knowledge to the Australian market. Among the areas covered are: Australianising your qualifications and yourself; how and where to look for jobs; networking and volunteering - the way to gain local experience; ten migrant job-hunting stories and their success strategies; writing winning Australian-style résumés and cover letters; how to address selection criteria; interview techniques and approaches; employment conditions, law and documentation; getting the help you need; staying positive and motivated. There is a great demand for skilled migrants like you. With this book, you have the information and guidance you need to compete successfully in the Australian job market." - back cover.
